🎶Mickey & Michelle 🎶
Join us for a night of tales and music from the Te Araroa!
🚶🏽♀️From Australia, Mickey & Michelle set out in October 2019 to hike the length of New Zealand, all 3000km on Te Araroa trail... and perform a series of concerts along the way!
The duo of Harpist Michelle Doyle and jazz fiddler and singer Mickey O’Donnell, are known for their contemporary folk music and have stopped in at pubs, halls and other venues to play gigs throughout their journey. And now they join us at Further Faster!
Michelle has osteoporosis – a chronic bone disease that increases the risk of fractures – and their walk will also raise money for research into the disease.
🚶🏽♀️ “I decided about a year ago that I wanted to do an even longer distance hike that the Australian Alps Walking Track (650km). Te Araroa ticked that box (3000km!), it's a quick flight from my home Melbourne and New Zealand is absolutely stunning.
Mickey was keen, but the time away from playing music was a concern. And then it came to us, why not do a musical tour along the way? At first, this seemed impossible, but with research and many discussions, we’ve come to realise that we can make this happen.”
Live in Store! $20 per person.
